An Assembly Member will be joined by police at his upcoming advice surgeries to create a ‘one-stop shop’ for constituents.

Ken Skates and North Wales Police are teaming up for surgeries in Llangollen, Cefn Mawr, Rhos and Overton to broaden the support offered to local people.

“Surgeries are vital part of my diary and provide a valuable opportunity to sit down face-to-face with constituents and discuss all manner of things and to offer support and advice,” said Clwyd South AM, Ken Skates.

“By teaming up with the police it means people can raise any concerns or information directly with them in confidence which they might otherwise not report, as well as speak to me about anything else they need help with. We are hopeful these one stop shop-style surgeries will help local people if there are a number of issues they want to discuss.”

Insp Whibberley, who leads North Wales Police’s Wrexham Rural team, said a representative from the local policing area will be present at the Cefn, Rhos and Overton surgeries to directly respond to any police-related matters.

Sgt Martin Jones, who leads policing in Llangollen, Corwen and Ruthin, added: “We are always keen to work closely with elected members to support local people, so we thought joining Ken at his Llangollen surgery made perfect sense.

“We look forward to discussing any local policing issues with members of the public then.”

The drop-in surgeries will be run on a first-come, first-served basis, so constituents don’t need to book an appointment in advance. They will take place at:

Llangollen Library, Castle Street (LL20 8NU), on Friday, March 20, from 3pm-5pm
George Edwards Hall, Cefn Mawr, on Friday, April 24, from 3.30pm-5.30pm
The Stiwt, Rhos, on Friday, May 15, from 3.30pm-5.30pm
Cocoa Rooms, Overton, on Friday June 12, from 3.30pm-5.30pm.
